Shades of Blue

Blue teamed with white offers a crisp clean look that recognizes the freshness of breezy spring and summer days.

Blue has something to do with my favorite scent...hehehehehe

Every woman should own a striped  top that she can bring out every year for casual holiday breaks. A top like this fits in so easily at the beach or on days just messing around doing nothing.

Make those blue even bluer with the reflection of a blue shoes.

Top: Mango
Pumps: Payless

The latest couture collections feature a very traditional fabric: lace. In particular, lace was prominent in designs for spring 2013 by the Italian designer Valentino. Aptly, lacemaking has its origins in Renaissance Italy. Traditional needle-made lace developed from openwork embroidery techniques in Venice. The insubstantial quality of lace is captured in its Venetian name punto in aria, meaning ‘stitch in the air’.
Originally, luxury fibres such as gold, silver and silk were used to make lace. Modern designers have begun to revive this practice. For example, Halle Berry wore a metallic lace dress by Dolce and Gabbana to the premiere of Cloud Atlas. Her dress is a great example of the flattering effect lace can have on a curvaceous figure. Lace underwear is a more discreet way to celebrate the sensual possibilities, and an abundance of lacy options are available when you shop for bras at

Tights are a simple but effective way to follow the trend for lace this winter when bare legs are no longer practical. With a pair of lacy patterned tights, you can cover up with charisma. Jonathan Ashton has an exciting range of lacy tights to bring a touch of mischief to any outfit.
Lace and fishnet tights inevitably evoke the costumes of shows like Chicago and Cabaret. A new production of the latter opened this autumn at the Savoy Theatre in London, 40 years on from the classic 1972 film. Liza Minnelli’s portrayal of Sally Bowles performing in suspenders and stockings has become an iconic image. Suspenders and hold-ups have enjoyed a revival in recent years, becoming a must-have fashion accessory.

Lace can also have a more old-fashioned, traditionally feminine feel. A modern twist on this quality of lace is currently on display in the Ballgowns exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London: Atsuko Kudo’s lace-printed latex gown. The futuristic design demonstrates that, from lingerie to formal wear, the appeal of lace endures.

Be The Best Version Of You

A peplum can be dramatic and sculptural or soft. You know that old rule - invest in a trend at the start of it not at the end.I know it's not yet peplums end because you'll see peplum skirts, top and dresses everywhere. So girls find your peplum stuff and be the best version of you.

Color of Sadness

When the heart is burdened with sadness, nothing looks bright. It's not easy to shake off the grief. You try to run from it, the more it chases you. You try to savor the pain until you realize that you're done. And you wanted to move on. Sadness flies in time. 
Losing someone you love is hard. You thought we lost everything. You can't hold their hand... You can't tousle their hair.Nothing will matter except  the last conversation you had with them.And the world will seem so quiet. Their things will remain. It’s sadder as time goes by. ... Memory becomes your partner. You hold it... you dance with it.
You start to see life as a time line: before and after. With them and without them. You will be reminded of a random memory of your childhood. A happy memory from “before,” followed by a strike of hurt because they were alive. And everything was good.
I may not have the chance to know you more, but in my heart I know I'll be missing you. I cried secretly everytime I visit you in the hospital. It hurts to see you in pain. I know you're happy now. 

Goodbye is painful if you know you'll never say hello again.
